Spicy Grilled Pineapple Tahini Slaw, Smoothies, Toast, Tacos & More  – Oriya Organics Raw Green Protein Powders Giveaway & Review

      Boy, I kinda went a little crazy this month when the folks at Oriya Organics asked me to work up a recipe using their products.  Crazy good though.  Their ingredients are just superbly nutritious. The first time I tried their Super Green Medley, which contains live enzymes, phytonutrients, antioxidants, wheatgrass, barley grass, chlorella, and sprulina,  I sliced lemon, fresh pineapple, cucumber and a tsp. of Super Green Medley powder into a jar of filtered water and let it chill in the fridge over night.  What a wonderful way to start my morning drinking this delicious powerhouse of nutrition the next day.  I’ve been enjoying the same drink, different fruits each morning now and I can feel the energy boost it’s been giving me already. The SuperFood Protein Medley has no processed sweeteners of any kind. It contains a full serving of spirulina and chlorella. On top of a protein, it is a multi-functional cleanser and detoxifier. You can be very creative with recipes including using the protein powder as a flour substitute as opposed to only in smoothies. The SuperGreen Medley is a blend of the most nutrient dense greens on the planet. There are no fillers,…

A. B. C. Smoothie Antioxidant Blast in a glass + my “virtual” friend Annie

A. B. C. Smoothie Antioxidant Blast in a glass + my “virtual” friend Annie

Vitamin A + Beta Carotene + Vitamin C = My A. B. C. Smoothie “Antioxidant Blast in a glass” I first saw this drink on Pinterest so I’m not pretending to be so clever as to have created this magnificent tribute to antioxidants and vitamins, but here it is for you now: 2 Carrots (roasted or steamed) + 1 medium size Sweet Potato (cooked) + 1/3 of a fresh Pineapple + 1 inch of fresh Ginger Chill + Blend + Drink = Power Surge! This kind of easy, fantastically healthy and delicious recipe is a great example of small changes I’ve made to my diet in the past 4 years.  Before eliminating  all dairy, and then all animal products in my diet, it was really just ‘what can I eat so I can continue to go’ and ‘how can I stay as thin as possible’  Today things have changed dramatically for me and my diet.  Living a Vegan Plant based lifestyle is such a great confidence builder for me.  I think more kindly about the world and I treat my body more kindly.  I don’t crave Bacon.  I don’t crave fat filled creamy shakes.  I do crave the energy boost and…
